    OK design, terrible exterior (I wont say worst!). I think we dubbed this case the "Transformer Case" at the shop. Reply

    The problem with case mods is that they just emphasize the geekiness of the owner/creator. At least when you do it yourself, you're being a true geek and not just some poser. Personally, I like my cases to have as few lights as possible and to be quiet. Of course, my computers are all in the living room, which has something to do with my tastes. If you're watching some show on TV, you don't want to hear the whine of the fans and power supplies. Even more important, when it's bed time and you're stuck sleeping on the couch (hey, it happens), its really hard to fall asleep with glowing cases illuminating the room, and the data-centeresque turbine whine doesn't help either.

    Basically, that Lian Li kicked ass over this.

    Yeah, if I was 10 years old, I might be going insane to have that for a case, but seeings how im pretty seasoned case modder, I must laugh. The thing just reaks of quality!


    I'll show you how its done right.....

    "NZXT incorporated good looks and performance in the Guardian."

    hahah, I'm sorry but this thing is anything but "good looking".. Am I the only one sick of these increadbly cheap and tacky looking cases? I used to think Thermaltake cases look like *&%@ till i saw this thing...

    Lets get some reviews of cooler masters, silverstones, or Lian Li's...

    You know, I have a plain metallic grey Antec 1080 server case, and I game just fine.

    I do have a red neon fan in there, but I don't even see that because the door it's installed in is facing away from me. Am I just destined for prosaic attitudes already at the tender age of seventeen? Or am I just too unimaginative to case mod?

    I dunno anymore.
